“Got Far Much More Than I Expected - Loved It To Death!”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

Transfer - Recommend a taxi prebook for £60 return (25 minute taxi ride or over and hour and a half by coach!)
Location - Wow! Not even a 2 minute walk to the beach (Beautiful white sand and very safe for families with young chidren). Not even 5 minute walk to Scottish Area and just about 5 minute walk the other way to the Irish Bars - The main square is about a 15 minute walk - This hotel is completly on the flat so fabulous for guests with walking dificulties (or just the lazy ones!)
Food - One word, well two words - Absalutely Gorgous! (Salads, Soups, Main Courses of Meat, Pasta, Kiddies Menu, Loads of Veg dishes. Breakfast is superb (recommend the scrambled egg - mmmmm)
From 10.30 till lunch there is a continental breakfast (this is also the snacks) - Croissants, Donuts, Cakes, Bread Rolls, Cold Meats, Cheese etc)
In the afternoon there is no snacks till 4 when the Cakes and Gatteux's come out !!!)
Drinks - All fantastic, you can order only 3 at a time.
Drinks, Ice Cream and Ice Lollys available all day from 10am till MIDNIGHT!!!!
Entertainment - Seemed to be geered more at the Dutch and German cients but as a Scot, it could be tollerated (nothing to write home about though)
Wtih this is mind, it did not spoil our holiday - we still had a fabulous time - Kids will just love it as the hotel has its own kids club - kids entertained ALL DAY!
Tennis Court (20 euro deposit)
Football Pitch
Volley Ball Pitch
Archery Field
kids Play area
Kids Pool
Adult Pool
THE ROOMS ALL HAVE FREE AIR CONDITINING PLUS A CEILING FAN!!! MY ROOM WAS FREEZING - IT WAS GREEAAATTTTT!!!!!!!
Request a pool view as the other rooms look onto the street
Staff were soooo friendly
We Would Go Back Today If We Could!!!
If You Want A Good Holiday, Book This One!!!

Just returned from a fantastic holiday in SantaPonsa were we stayed in the Playa Santa Ponsa ,we thought the hotel for a 2 star was fantastic (been in 3 and 4 star hotels) and didnt get the same service as we got here.
Rooms were basic but very clean ok the shower was small but for the overall cost what do people want food ok ,pools good ,only for some adults attitudes to some kids playing around the pool (REMEMBER ITS A FAMILY HOTEL)kids are there to enjoy themselves as the parents are.

10 of us ages ranging from 45 to 12 spent an A/I week at this hotel recently. Never came across such lovely staff in every aspect of the hotel. Great location only a minute from the beach and only a couple of minutes walk from the main bars and restaurants. Couldn't really fault the food, a huge selection, definately something for everyone but by the 4th day I was pretty sick of it! However, all the teenagers loved it! Going A/I was ideal with 6 teenagers as they could have as many cold drinks/snacks all day long. There was also hot snacks available from 10 at night to 12 which was like takeaway food, hotdogs, chicken drum sticks etc. Tea, coffee, cake & biscuits available from 4 O'Clock. Lovely big pool and also one for children. The sunbeds though were very squashed together and you get the usual "towels at dawn" brigade with some people not turning up all day! So annoying. The sun loungers were the worst kind, hard and uncomfortable and you couldn't adjust the back of it. The kids club people/entertainment around the pool was very good and lots of things to do like pool polo and archery. Entertainment at night wasn't up to much but it was okay for small children. The best night was a tribute band of the Jackson 5 & Michael Jackson. Absolutely brilliant! Rooms were a good size but bathroom tiny and the shower in our room was the worst I've come across, it was so small you could hardly move in it and was very clautrophobic. I had to use it with the doors half open! Also the walls in the bedrooms were paper thin! Only 1 computer in the hotel which was always busy. Santa Ponsa is lovely but not much going on at the beach other than pedellos, the teens wanted to try paragliding and the banana boat but none available. All in all a really good value hotel for a family holiday and going A/I certainly keeps the cost down!

just got back from a week at this hotel..hotel reception not the best run but the rest of service ok even though we never ate there..rooms were good but showers very tiny
really liked the position of the hotel and so many restaurants around you but i must express how good we found the scottish corner to be. we were last there 3 years ago but it has changed hands to a really lovely couple called kerry and mark. please give them a try especially if u got small children as they have bouncy castle and amusements for them while u can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat...the breakfasts and tosties are fab...you wont be disappointed..
another brill restaurant is mrs murphys for a great evening meal...(irish corner)
oh and make sure you do the boat trips and book from captain birdseye( u cant miss him in the street)

Stayed here at the end of August and couldnt fault it. We where a group off 6 adults, AI, booked independently.
Location was brilliant- not even two mins walk from the beach- only a few mins walk from the Irish centre with lots of pubs and bars on the way. 20mins walk from the square.
The rooms weren't massive but we where only using them to sleep and to store the luggage so was definately fit for the purpose! Rooms where spotless and cleaned daily if desired. Bathroom wasn't huge but it had shower, toilet and sink with large mirror- what more could you want! There was a balcony with a couple off chairs and foot stool. There was both Air Con and a fan which we used all the time while in the room. Only thing I could fault was we could have done with another plug or two in the room.
There was two pools- large and small, pool table, tennis court, we where allowed access to the pool in the hotel across the road- alot nicer and a good change off scenery. We always got sun loungers. We where allowed 3 drinks at a time at the bar under the AI scheme- local drinks and all inter beers etc where 50%off- paid E1.50 for a smirnoff!
Staff where pleasent and the childrens activites look great for the children- must be great for parents to have someone else to entertain the kids all day everyday!
The food was lovely- there was always chicken, fish, pork, veg options, different variations of rice each evening, chips, good chioce of cold salads, two types off soups, some days there was a carvery and the food was constantly topped up during service. You name it they served it during the week we where there- mussels, lasagne, curry, duck! And at least 10 desserts! cheeses, fruit, freshly baked breads. Breakfast was the usual cereals, sauages,bacon, beans etc. Lots of tasty watermelon! Couldnt fault the food at all- definately AI if we every visit again because a few off our friends where staying in nearby apartments and they all got food poisoning from eating in a local eatery. We saved a fortune by not eating out every morning, lunch and dinner! Def the most inexpensive holiday we've ever been on and couldnt praise it enough.
